zachy and mummy

I love finding out more about the person behind the blog, and these types of posts are just perfect for that! I was asked 11 questions by the lovely Mary from The Hearty Life, go and give her blog a read because it is amazing! This is my second one of these posts, so go and read the first one too!

1. Have you ever broken any bones?
I have only broken one bone which was in my foot! I was running down the stairs to answer the phone and missed the bottom step. I refused to accept that it was broken and even went out to dinner that night wearing heels, but a couple of days later went and had it checked! I had to wear a massive boot until it healed which was so embarrassing at school!

2. What do you do to relax?
For me, the most relaxing thing is to have a long hot bubble bath! I could (and sometimes do) spend hours in the bath, and I love them even more when I have a fun bath bomb to use!

3. Why did you start your blog?
It was for several reasons really. I have wanted to start one for ages but I never really stuck at it until now. This time around I wanted to document Zach's life as a kind of online journal, make some more mum friends as I don't have that many in real life, and also use my brain during maternity leave!

4. Best film you've seen this year?
I don't know if it came out this year or last, but the best film I've seen is Boyhood! I think its a great film and I love that you get to watch all of the characters grow up over time. I think it's really clever and although quite long I was hooked the whole way through. It's got an awesome soundtrack too!

5. Have you ever read a book that changed your life?
I haven't got one that comes to mind, so I don't think I have! I wish I had a better answer for this one - I need to get reading more!

6. Are you a spender or a saver?
I am a spender! I am absolutely awful at saving money, and it something I want to improve although I like having fun and enjoying spending my money!

7. What is your favourite wardrobe item this summer?
It has to be my black sandals from Primark. They were a total bargain and they're not even really that exciting but I love them and have worn them to death!


8. Top 5 "want to travel to" destinations?
I  am a big lover of travelling and seeing the world, so ideally I'd like to see everywhere! But the current top five are: Stockholm, Marrakech, Toronto, Reykjavik and Venice.

9. Most challenging parenting dilemma right now?
It's currently weaning, and trying to get Zach to stop drinking milk during the night. He used to sleep through, but he's gotten in the habit of waking for milk and then refusing milk during the day so we're just trying to change that around!

10. Why and how you chose your kids names?
We were originally going to call our little boy Isaac, but then we were talking about how we would end up shortening it to Zach. We realised that Zach was also short for Zachary, which we ended up loving more than Isaac, and when he was born it just fit him perfectly!

11. Favourite season and why?
It has to be Autumn and the beginning of winter - September to December! I love everything about it! The leaves changing colour and falling, coats, scarves, boots, seasonal Starbucks drinks, crisp air, wooly socks, halloween and pumpkins, fireworks... I could go on and on! 


  1. Love this post, although all I can think about is how nice a big bubble bath would be right now.

    1. Thank you! Me too, I haven't had one in too long! xx

  2. Chantal I absolutely love this! Autumn is my fave too :) YESSSSS!!! Hahaha and those sandles are lovely - what a primarni barg!

    We went to Venice this summer and it was absolutely beautiful, such an amazing feeling when your there! Good luck with the weaning! ahhhh xx

    1. Thank you! It is just the best season isn't it!? Oh I bet it was wonderful, I definitely want to book a little trip there! xx
